Our specialists have been researching, and working with, Japanese Knotweed since 1988. Our commissioned, published work dates back to 1990 and we continue to work on new guidance and research documents for  local and national government bodies.

Since 2001, GroundCover has processed over 51,000 m³ of knotweed-infested material that would otherwise have gone to landfill. Our success in eradicating Japanese Knotweed in a diverse range of situations, throughout the UK, is described in the ‘Case Studies’ section.
